Define Your Digital Strategy & Create A More Engaging Online Experience With Canvas

A competitive edge for business schools.

How to Attract and Retain Business Students

Worldwide, more than 6.7 million MBA students (1 in 3) now learn virtually, making the MBA the #1 online graduate degree. To stay competitive, leading business schools rely on the Canvas VLE to deliver a unique online learning experience—one that furthers their digital strategy and positions them to attract and retain the 1 in 2 MBA students expected to enroll online by 2020.

With a 99.9% uptime guarantee, Canvas provides an unprecedented level of native-cloud reliability for distance learning. Combined with Canvas mobile apps for iOS and Android, this enablesbusiness schools to confidently meet growing student demand—especially by digital natives—for unprecedented levels of online access and flexibility.

Native-Cloud Reliability for Digital Natives

Even the most compelling content falls flat in an outdated or overly-complicated VLE. That’s why Canvas provides modern tools for teaching and learning, designed for simplicity and delivered via a clean, intuitive interface. With Canvas, institutions can create an engaging learning experience that emphasizes content and collaboration, while eliminating complexity.

Modern Tools Made Simple

Canvas is an open but fully-supported VLE. That means we publish our source code, have an open API and integrate seamlessly with hundreds of powerful educational plugins, while also providing full-service user support. For business schools, this opens the way for more innovation, more adaptability and more power to customise online programmes.

Open for Business Education

It’s clean and easy to navigate, and mirrors the online experience of slick social media platforms, which students are comfortable and happy using. Ease of use and good design can’t be under-estimated in technology — and Canvas has that in spades.

Canvas will ultimately help teachers do what they do best: teach. Creating content, grading and feedback are quicker and easier with Canvas, while still being comprehensive and valuable.
